Leaving Your Boat in Curacao

If you don’t want to leave the boat on the hard in Curacao Marine (very good on-land storage) and are willing to leave it in the water, it is easy to leave in Spanish Waters. The anchorage is good, quite free from crime (except at the dinghy dock in Cabrits Bay) and in spring and summer, the weather is reliable. Many people leave their boats there for 2-3 months.

You need to have a Curacaon who is responsible for looking after it. That is easily accomplished: contact Dick on Isis or Paul who does the propane runs, or Marianne and Hans on Sol. The last are cruisers who also own a home in Spanish Waters and meet the requirements. They will also take good care of your boat. A third possibility is to take a slip at Seru Boka Marina in Spanish Waters. There are no additional governmental requirements or charges beyond just clearing into Curacao. There is little barnacle growth in Spanish Waters, just grass and some soft black slime.
